The Superduty is too over-the-top butch to ignore. Tundras look stupid inside and out.
UserDrew
E-Series all the way.

Had to go with the Tundra...I love the way it looks, although the flame spittin' Super Duty almost got my vote for that fact alone.

I'd never drive any of this in my life...terrible they are imo. Tundra here I guess biggrin.gif

Tundra. I'd never buy a fullsize truck, but if I did, experience with the Tacoma would lead me to the Tundra.

Ford Superduty, my brother and sister both drive Fords I just picked the Ford. That and I really like the center console look.

Superduty, The Interior is just so damn cool.

toyota, just because of that insane engine.
McKhaos
Superduty, badass all the way.

Ford trucks! im going with the superduty. Even though that interior is ridiculously angled. I agree with clark the tundra looks retarded and awkward. But whats up with the F450 costing $40k?
